Gage plies Loren with samples and banter and soon finds ice cream isn’t the only thing on the menu. After the men share a hot night together, Gage approaches his uncle about Loren’s ideas, but he fears Gordon’s religious nature may mean rejection not just for Loren but also for Gage, who isn’t out to his uncle.

    This is a well-written, fun anthology with a "work" theme: chefs, spies, TV personalities, delivery guys, men in costumes, and men in dresses. Most of the stories are contemporary, with one, Unmasked, set in the future and one, Dance Hall Days, set in the past. Most were plenty steamy, and one, Not Quite 1776, was downright porny. A couple even had a HEA! There was sex in a tent, sex in a car, and sex in a dark closet. Rounded up to 4 stars, because what's not to love about that? Disclaimer: Construction workers were not fondled in the writing of this (very long) review. Extra MayoHenrietta Clarke~3.75~No steam (NONE, not even a kiss) but plenty of sweetness in this shortie about shy, geeky Walter (who seems to have Asperger syndrome) and Glyn, the new sandwich delivery guy, who never puts extra mayo on Walter's sandwich, the same ham sandwich Walter orders every day of the week. Despite Walter's quirks (his first text to Glyn read: "Hi Glyn, this is Walter. Don't call me.") and Glyn's insecurities, the guys manage to find their way to a first date. The last section of the last chapter offered a glimpse of a lovely HEA. I loved what Glyn wrote on Walter's sandwich wrapper! Adorable.Ice Cream DreamsShae Connor ~3.25~This is a fluffy shortie about a chef and an ice cream maker/business major making magic in (and out!) of the kitchen. The MCs were cute as pie (or cake?). There was insta love in spades, but the sweetness won me over, and the steamy bits didn't hurt either. I liked Gage's grandpa as a secondary character. I really wanted to see Gage and Loren's relationship taken to the next level. This was a very readable story with a happy but open-to-interpretation ending. My OTPBru Baker ~4~I wasn't sure about this one at first (the present-tense narration was a little jarring), but I finished with a huge grin on my face. Troy and Ryder are stars of a show akin to MythBusters. They are maybe-more-than-fuck-buddies, but even though there's fandom speculation about them "shipping it," they have not gone official with their relationship. Troy (whose POV we get) is sure that Ryder doesn't want anything serious. Little does Troy know! This was really cute and hot enough to read twice. The "hidden" hand job(s) were all kinds of smexy. Kudos to the perfect use of social media to spice up this little tale. This wasn't long, but I really felt the love and connection between the MCs. And that Twitter hash tag at the end: Awwww! #bestillmybeatingheartNot Quite 1776Therese Woodson ~3~HOTNESS ALERT: I dare you not to drool at the combustible sex between Henry, a commitment phobe and history buff who works at a museum, and Owen, a mechanic who likes to dabble in Revolutionary War reenactments. There was a lot of steam on page, but the sex sort of took over the story. The only connection explored between the men was sexual. We learn next to nothing about the MCs, except that Henry is promiscuous and guarded, and the ending, while somewhat hopeful, provided no closure. I wanted one more chapter, just one more. UnmaskedKay Walker~4~Not a traditional romance, Unmasked is set in a futuristic, dystopian world where capitalism rules, money talks, the air isn't fit to breathe, and the chasm between the rich and the poor is miles apart. Imagine civilization NOW and then think of the world in a generation or two if nothing changes. Even vaccines are privatized and available to the wealthy only. Raven is a masked spy working for a corporation hoping to overturn the world order one bit at a time, and Glitch, a techy genius, is Raven's handler. We get mystery, tension, and fairly thorough world building for such a short story. Both MCs felt fully realized; the connection between them was charged, and the little bit of steam well worth the wait. The ending was HFN, realistically so. To have ended with a HEA would have been to push the story in a direction it wasn't ready to go. I would love to see this one rewritten into a complete novel!The BetHolly O. Hale~3~This cute story is about a married couple, Jack and Aaron, who own a company together. The two make a bet about having sex at work: Jack is all for it, while Aaron thinks it's too risky. Who wins the bet? Does it matter? The fun is in the playing. There wasn't any real character or plot development here, but there was plenty of steam with a bit of kink thrown in. The scene at the meeting was quite funny, if not entirely realistic. That whole thing was, uh, hard on Jack, that's for sure. Dance Hall DaysAmy Jo Cousins~4.25~This was the longest story of the bunch, and also my favorite! Cousins writes gorgeous prose, and this story about a Nancy boy with the voice of an angel and a gruff bouncer set at the drag dance hall where they both work was captivating. Set in 1930s London, Dance Hall Days is a perfect blend of the lyrical and dirty. Laurie once sang Frank a song. When Frank turned his back, Laurie allowed himself to crumble, earning money by blowing johns in the coat room, until one night changed everything. Laurie and Frank were lost souls. Frank couldn't imagine himself with such a pretty boyo until he realized that Laurie was so much more than the rouge and dresses he wore. My heart broke for them both, trapped in their loneliness, missing what was right in front of them. I wouldn't call the ending a HEA, but certainly the beginning of one. His songbird. His brawler. Short TimerJenni Michaels~3~A 1969 (of course) cherry red Mustang is sex on wheels. Working at a used car dealership in the heat of the summer, Davis just wants to go home and cool off. But when he sees hot-as-hell Kiran walk through the door, he goes for ride instead. This was the shortest story of the bunch, fun and sexy with a twist at the end.

    **3.5 stars**This was a nice collection of stories with a workplace theme. Most of them are Contemporary, and there is one historical, and one futuristic dystopian. Extra Mayo, by Henrietta Clarke---3.5 starsThe office employee and the sandwich delivery guy. This was very sweet. Walter is very shy and suffers from social anxiety. When the new delivery guy neglects to put extra mayo in his sandwitch, he is furious (mayo is important dammit!), but can't pluck up the courage to say something. Imagine when Glynn asks him out!This was not steamy at all, but it was very sweet. I liked the way the MCs communicated and how understanding Glynn was. It ended kind of abruptly, almost confusing, like a big chunk of the story was missing, since it went from their first date to months later.Ice Cream Dreams, by Shae Connor ---3.5 starsThe chef and the ice-cream scooper(<---yes, the title exists. I checked!) Gage works in his uncle's ice-cream shop, when famous chef, Loren, walks in, with a business proposal in mind. But he walks out with so much more.This was a bit insta-love, or maybe insta-lust. It's a light story with a tentative HFN, and some steamy bits. I particularly liked Gage's interactions with his uncle, Gordon.My OTP, by Bru Baker---4 starsThe MythBusters! Troy and Ryder cohost a popular TV show. They 're, also, secret fuck buddies, although their fans have their suspicions. Troy wants more from Ryder than just sex, but he thinks the feeling is not mutual. How wrong he is!It took me a while to get into the story; the third person, present tense narration was a little off-putting at first, but I got used to it. The chemistry between Troy and Ryder is amazing and the hashtags adorable. Right amount of steam too!Not quite 1776, by Therese Woodson ---3 stars The historical interpreter and the mechanic. This read more like erotica. Very high on the steam and too low on...everything else. I didn't feel any particular connection between the MCs excpet thair obvious chemistry in bed. The sex was pretty hot, though.The ending was somewhat unsatisfying. I think I'd like this story more, had it been longer.Unmasked, by Kay Walker---3.5 starsThe spy and his teck handler. This is a dystopian tale set in the future. The gap between the rich and the poor is bigger than ever. On the outside, Raven is a high society persona, but in reality, he and his handler, Glitch, try to help the poor, one mission at a time.I particularly liked the world building and the "action", that kept me at the edge of my seat. I didn't really feel the romance here, although I really liked the MCs and their relationship. There is a little bit of steam and a nice HFN.The bet, by Holly O. Hale---3.5 starsThe business partners. I like stories that take place when the relationship is already established. Jack and Aaron are a married couple and co-own their company. The story is about a bet they made about having sex in the office.I liked risky Jack and the more reserved Aaron. It was a funny and very sexy little story.Dance Hall Days, by Amy Jo Cousins---4.5 starsThe singer and the bouncer. This is the historical story of the anthology, set in London 1932, and it also happens to be my favorite.Frank, the gruff bouncer, and Laurie, the effeminate singer and drag queen are so right for each other. Characters full of surprises and contradictions; Frank is seemingly tough and strong, but in reality he had such a soft side, and the fact that he felt so undeserving of Laurie broke my heart a little. And Laurie might be the one on his knees, crying, when we first met him, but his strength was amazing.Beautiful writing, amazing setting, and great ending.Short timer, by Jenni Michaels---3 starsI can't say much without giving away the ending, which was half the fun of the story. But it was sexy and surprising, although too short. It was nice.*Also posted on Gay Book Reviews.*

    My short story, "Dance Hall Days," set in a 1930's London drag dance hall, is included in this collection of tales of love and lust in the workplace. I'll be blogging about the inspiration and the research for this one, because it's fascinating stuff!London, 1932. Bouncer Frank Armstrong has been watching drag performer Laurie Hale for months—watching him mesmerize the audience with his beautiful voice and shy charm, and watching him fall for the honeyed words of wealthy men who come to the ballroom slumming. One night, Frank finds Laurie suffering his latest heartbreak and decides to clean him up and give him some advice, but Laurie is in no mood for a lecture. An anti-sodomy raid puts a halt to Frank’s speech, and while the two of them hide from the police in a secret storage closet, they acknowledge the attraction between them. But it will only blossom into more if Laurie can convince Frank a dance hall songbird can be as strong as the man who guards the door.

    Extra Mayo by Henrietta Clarke - 2 starsI only liked the last third, everything else was preposterous IMO. Ice Cream Dreams by Shae Connor - 2 stars So-so and with an unsatisfactory ending. My OTP by Bru Baker - 3.5 starsA good mix of sexiness, romanticism and fun. Not Quite 1776 by Therese Woodson - 3 stars I read this yesterday and I already don't remember the name of a MC although I bear I mind the plot. So, nice but forgettable Unmasked by Kay Walker - 4 stars Well, what a surprise. A HFN futuristic dystopia with a lot of potential for a series. The Bet by Holly O. Hale - 2,5 stars Dance Hall Days by Amy Jo Cousins - 4 starsHistorical (London, 1930s). Not super original yet so well written that is a thing of beauty. Short Timer by Jenni Michaels - 2 starsPredictable.

    This delightful collection of m/m erotic romance short stories all feature something in common (besides the obvious smexy times) - they all center around the workplace, hence the title. The following is a review of a few of the titles - based on the selections that I've read I would highly recommend this anthology! Extra Mayo - Henrietta ClarkeIn this quirky story, we are introduced to introvert Walter -he who likes his routine and the disruption in his life caused by Glyn, the new sandwich delivery guy at this office. Walter's shyness is delightfully written as he slowly comes out of his shell to interact with Glyn. It's awkward and funny and exactly right for these two characters as they find their way to each other. Ice Cream Dreams - Shae ConnorThis story of a fantasized high school romance coming to life in later years was a tender and thoughtful romance. I really enjoyed the emphasis on food - Gage's ice cream shop where he works for his Uncle and Loren's chef training and restaurant experience added some delightful scenes and flavours to the story. The sex was hot and steamy and I liked both characters and felt that they fit well together. My OTP -Bru BakerI liked the concept of this story about two men doing a 'myth buster's' type of show and secretly engaged in a relationship that the public speculates about. I did find the present tense third person point of view a bit disconcerting - I don't think I've ever read a story from that viewpoint before. But I enjoyed how the story played out, the relationship between the two men and the way they were able to have fun with each other on the set. Not Quite 1776 -Therese WoodsonThis story was great! I totally loved the concept, of working at a historical museum and hosting re-enactors for special event days. This one was definitely on the erotic side, at least an equal time spent on bedroom antics as outside of it. The writing was really well done, the setting unique and interesting and the sex steamy and intense. It's a one night stand that turns into two nights that's going to become more and I would have been quite happy with an even longer story. Dance Hall Days - AJ CousinsWhat struck me most about this story was the research that must have gone into creating this 1930's dance hall setting - a drag nightclub, constantly under threat of police raids yet still vibrant and colourful. Pairing up a brute bouncer with a seemingly effeminate drag queen, it's the strong one that becomes weak and the weak strong. I loved the whole story which actually surprised me because it wouldn't have been something I picked up on it's own, and I would have missed out on a fascinating glimpse into the lives of gay men in this particular time period. Short Timer - Jenni MichaelsJust thinking about this story puts a huge grin on my face. It was sexy, it was surprising, it was purely delightful. I don't want to give away the story but I'll say that it pulled me in completely. Note: this collection was provided by one of the authors for review

    Extra Mayo by Henrietta Clarke - 3,5 stars3,5 stars for the office worker meeting the sandwich delivery guy. Not much is explained in terms of back story and such in this story, but love is self explanatory, yes? It was cute.Ice Cream Dreams by Shae Connor - 2,5 starsMeh. Too much description of food. Way to insta romance. And half the story business talk with one of the MC's uncle. I initially thought 3 stars, but having read the whole anthology, I'm downrating to 2 stars. Some of the ice creams, though, I would have liked to have tasted.My OTP by Bru Baker - 4 starsDirty and hot with an übercute ending that warmed by heart. Not Quite 1776 by Therese Woodson - 3,5 starsEven though I studied history at uni, American history is not my strong suit. So all the references and the reenactment setting was lost on me. Still, Owen was a doll and the story was written well, also the sex scenes. A bit of an abrupt ending, but an hopeful one. I liked it.Unmasked by Kay Walker - 3,5 starsI would have loved to have read this story as a full novel getting more details of this dystopian future, and of Raven and Glitch. As a short it does pretty well, but it's a pretty big setting to get into just a few pages. I really like spy games and stealth, and I loved the the face mask gadget. The Bet by Holly O. Hale - 3 starsA married couple and business partners spice things up at work and in the boardroom, making it hard to concentrate. Heh. It was basically a porn scene without much characterization. Dance Hall Days Amy Jo Cousins - 4 starsLoved the story of the young effeminate singer and drag queen Laurie and "his" big, gruff brawler, Frank. It was set in London in the 1930. I connected with them both. Great characterization. It just goes to show how great a short story can be if done right! I would have loved a more wrapped up ending, though. On the other hand, I liked that it left me making up my own continuation in my mind. I made it a happy one.Short Timer by Jenni Michaels - 2 starsIt's bad for a story that I have to look it up to remember what it was about when writing the review, right? So, yeah. This was an unforgettable short story about a car salesman and a potential "customer". There was some hotness, but the twist just kinda made it a stupid story.

    Pretty solid collection of stories. I think the first one ended kind of abruptly, I was really confused when it went from their first date to apparently months later, even though it just said 'Monday' not 'months later'.I hated the last story, Short Timer, but it's a personal beef, I dislike the whole 'twist' where they knew each other all along, it's always such a disappointment/let down.My favorite was definitely 'My OTP', it was so cute and sweet.

    I liked this collection of stories, though some more than others. I loved the first two and also Dance hall days. There was a couple i felt were more about sex than the stories though. All in all it was a good collection of stories. I have rated each book individually and you can find my full review at MMgoodbookreviews http://mmgoodbookreviews.wordpress.com/ *
